Laser phototherapy is a new way to combat hair loss. The claim is that the Androhair and other laser combs use laser photo therapy to not only stop hair loss but can actually regenerate the scalp and thus bring about thicker hair growth than a person has experienced during the thinning of the hair which is a natural process of growing old.
The reason everyone does experience some form of hair loss is the body naturally produces a chemical called DHT. DHT is the culprit that visible sign is the loss of hair at the crown and temples of a man and lead to an overall thinning of the scalp in a woman.
The laser comb can help the body and scalp although it is the hair follicles in particular that concern system such as the Androhair. These combs use laser light to regenerate hair follicles that aren’t dead but in the telogen or resting phase. The low level laser therapy works on the hair follicle using monochromatic light, which means all the energy is essentially one wavelength of color, whereas a light bulb produces a broad spectrum of light and energy waves. Laser energy is also collimated which means it is a tight beam of light energy that spreads or diverges only a little at great distances while a light bulb loses its brightness very quickly with distance.
It is this monochromatic light that they claim can bring resting hair follicles back to a growth cycle and therefore lead to thicker and healthier hair. Laser phototherapy is in the early stages of evolution and time and clinical studies are needed to be done before we can truly answer whether this technology can really work, although the theory of using low level laser light does have a basis in fact.
The laser comb along with other technologies should be studied in more detail and results over time will show if the theory rings true.
